Alcohol consumption as a risk factor for autoimmune thyroid disease: a prospective study

In Clinical Thyroidology vat Stephen W. Spaulding, MD drie nieuwe onderzoeken samen naar het matig gebruik van alcohol en de invloed daarvan op de ontwikkeling van hypothyreoïdie. Tevens geeft hij commentaar.

Amsterdam

A 5-year study cohort from Amsterdam for prospectively studying the course of euthyroid subjects whose relatives have autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITDs), was now used to assess the annual incidence of overt hypothyroidism in subjects who consumed more than 10 drinks per week versus those who did not.

Denemarken

A study cohort of Danish subjects originally designed to assess how increasing iodine intake affected thyroid diseases was now used retrospectively to analyze the effect of alcohol consumption on the prevalence of hypothyroidism.

Cleveland

Finally, a study from the Cleveland Clinic retrospectively assessed the prevalence of hypothyroidism in patients who consumed fewer than 10 drinks per week versus those who abstained completely, in patients with biopsy-proven non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) versus control patients with normal liver function.
